  1. Every now and then I get an email invitation to a new site. Sometimes they will interest me enough to look around for a bit, often I ignore them. Yesterday I opened an email from ArtGarageSale, checked out the site and signed up almost immediately! I created a special line of small works just for that site. I love it. I know I’m so very new there, but something, actually many things, about it just click with me. It reminds me of how I felt when I fell in love with Etsy in 2006. As an artist, I love that Travis created a site with a solid art focus. Having many mediums of fine art and fine crafts is great – the more the merrier! But I have a feeling he is bringing in a large art buying community – just the sort of folks I love to show my art to, of course!

    So in a nutshell, I’m an optomistic and hopeful fan and new member of ArtGarageSale.com. Thank you for mentioning them in your blog. (I googled the site name and found you).
